350 mm, I haven't tried it but if I were to get one that would be it or I would just build some.

Looks nice slawter

Just minor updates for me : ASUS Xonar D2X/XDT and i replaced my 4x1 gb crucial ram with 2x2 gb Kingston Hyper X. Considering adding another pair but since i only use my PC for gaming and movies i don't think another 4 gb ram will matter much, what do you guys think ?

Crappy cell phone cam:

Yours is nice aswell, i worked a LOT on cable management this time around, pain in the ass tbh but worth it. I did as you are doing now, buying extensions but i also cut and resoldered/heat shrank chassifan power cables so i could hide them better. It's pretty ok now, as good as can be expected for a first try i think and much better than my previous rig. What helped a lot though was planning ahead, trying to figure out what type and how many connections i needed at certain areas on the motherboard to minimize visible cables as much as possible. It also helps with a black interior, harder to spot mistakes there.

Thanks guys, airflow is great because of less clutter aswell. My cpu idles at 25 c @ 1.3250v 3.6 ghz, the 470 idles at 37 c @ 650/1300/1700 with 60% fanspeed. With 7 chassifans you can't call it quiet but as long as i can sleep in the same room with it running i'm fine with it
